The 468 SPAC I SE (the “Company”) is a recently formed European special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). Its main purpose is the acquisition of one operating business with principal business operations in a member state of the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom or Switzerland in the form of a merger, capital stock exchange, share purchase, asset acquisition, reorganization or similar transaction (the “Business Combination”). The Company intends to follow the investment strategy to invest in late-stage / pre-IPO phase companies by focusing on companies in the Targeted Technology Sectors that can quickly achieve global scale. Targeted Technology Sectors comprise of the sub-sectors: marketplaces, direct-to-consumer (D2C) and software & artificial intelligence.
The leadership team of the 468 SPAC I SE consists of Alexander Kudlich (CEO), Dr. Ludwig Ensthaler (CIO) and Florian Leibert (CTO), founders of 468 Capital, who have built an extensive technology ecosystem in Europe providing them with proprietary access to an extensive European tech-network. The Management Team is further supported by a supervisory board with a strong experience in investing and developing technology companies that will consist of Gisbert Rühl (Chairman) (Klöckner & Co), Lea-Sophie Cramer (Amorelie), Hans Maret (Triton) and Florian Wendelstadt (Caldec Holding, formerly General Atlantic).
The SPAC expects to benefit from the robust tech-network of the Management Team and its strong roots in the European tech-community, which potentially provide access to off-market-transactions exclusive to the Company. The Management Team has experience and track record in building global success stories across verticals in the Targeted Technology Sectors, representing a powerful combination of a proven track-record of deal sourcing and value creation as well as growth-stage and public market expertise.
